20 Times People Took Things Too Literally And Hilariously Failed At Their Job

Did the job, boss.

We’ve all been on that auto-pilot mode that makes us do our job without actually being conscious of it. And it takes us a few moments to realize that we may have been doing things way too literally according to the request instead of understanding the context.

Well, here are some people who went through with the requests literally and failed to understand. But at least they were being entertained while doing it and that’s just what we need during this boring lockdown period.
